“Volunteers don’t necessarily have the time; they have the heart.”
Elizabeth Andrew’s words capture the spirit of so many people in the Arkansas Valley. They give their hearts to the communities of our region. We are proud to provide some much deserved recognition to those people that dedicate so much to the people and places of our area.
